<quoted text>Then you would enjoy even MORE freedom in a place like Somalia. There are more gun toting conservatives there who are fighting for their freedom, so you should fit right in.
In 1980, Somalis were under the rule of a military dictatorship with a totalitarian government.

By 1990, residents were prohibited from gathering publicly in groups greater than three or four, fuel shortages caused long lines of cars at petrol stations, inflation had driven the price of pasta and paper currency notes were of such low value that several bundles were needed to pay for a restaurant meal.

Fast forward to 2012. A new political process of permanent democratic institutions has been established - a parliament consisting of Senators as well as a lower house; 30% of the National Constituent Assembly earmarked for women; and the President elected by a constitutional election.

So I'm not sure where you find fault fighting for freedom.

The government did retaliate recently against a resurgent stronghold and thousands of Somalis ended up pouring into the city's sports stadium to protest the truck bombing by the al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab with the Somali president, Sheik Sharif Sheik Ahmed, spoke at the rally, calling al-Shabab "religious thugs."

I certainly don't know all of the complexities going on in this country, but just from what I've read this morning I'm still not sure what you're talking about.

Feds charge 34 in Arizona gun buys for Mexico drug cartel

"Straw buyers have as much blood on their hands ... as the ones who pull the trigger," said Bill Newell, special agent in charge of the Phoenix ATF.

All of those indicted are U.S. citizens or legal residents.

The indictments reveal the relative ease with which citizens who have not been convicted of a felony can amass an arsenal of weapons.

For instance, according to the indictments, defendant Joshua Moore bought six AK-47 and similar rifles from a gun store in Prescott in 2009. Three days later, he bought two AK-47s from a gun store in Glendale. Seven days later, he bought 10 from the same store. Two days later, he bought five more there. Less than a month later, he bought 20 from the same store. Three months later, he bought 10 more from the Glendale gun store.

The purchases themselves are legal; nothing in the law prohibits citizens who pass background checks from buying long guns, such as AK-47s, or handguns. But authorities say Moore lied on federal firearms applications by declaring that he was buying the guns for himself when he was really supplying them to cartel front men.

Gallup: Dissatisfaction With Current Gun Laws Rises Sharply

In a significant shift in the public's attitudes from one year ago, 38 percent of Americans expressed dissatisfaction with the country's current gun laws, according to findings from Gallup released Monday.

Last year, Gallup's polling showed only 25 percent of the public were dissatisfied. Still, more Americans 43 percent are satisfied with current U.S. gun laws, although that's down from the 50 percent who expressed satisfaction a year ago.

As a strict constitutionalist, I also recognize the fact that the Constitution was written so the average person can easily read anad understand it.
I also know that if the Supreme Court rules that the sky is green, the sky doesn't change color tomorrow.
It is only the confidence of the people that the government is being conducted in accordance with the Constitution that maintains order in society. Without that confidence, order dissipates.
The government, all branches, to include the Supreme Court, has a critical need to restore that confidence. To restore that confidence, all that is necessary is to conduct government business in accordance with the Constitution.
If the Constitution is so easy to understand, why were you so clueless about the function of Executive Orders??

First you said they were unConstitutional.

Then you walked it back and said they were only applicable to the Executive Branch.

Then I showed you some of Bush's 290 Executive Orders, and you folded your tent and ran away. LOL

You're not just stupid, you're a coward to boot!!

BTW, the only ones complaining about the SC is a handful of nitwits like you who throw hissy fits when things don't go your way.

Deal with it,, loser.

Operation Wide Receiver was the first gun walking program by the ATF that went bad and guns were lost. So shouldn't you be focused on that as much as F&F? Or is it you are a hypocritical bastard who looks over anything during the Bush years but blames Obama when the exact same thing happens?

That's just one instance in Fast & Furious.
The sellers were put up to it by the gov in that specific instance for a specific end.
Criminals, cartels and especially gangs do not purchase legally. Ever hear of illegal under the radar arms dealers?(Not stores).
One scripted deal does not make for the criminal element buying legally.

Are saying that Mitt Romney would have abolished the use of drones?

The American people are in an outrage about gun violence, the incident in CT brought it home for many more; they couldn't just poopoo it away as black gang bangers in Chicago stuff.
No, this was a wealthy white community and the murderer one of their own. The President has to do something; as would any President. Including Mitt Romney; George Bush did it and so did Bill Clinton.
